For a cool, modern spin on New Year’s Eve—or any holiday party and beyond—meet The Aspen Kit. From a just in from the cold flush on the cheeks to just a hint of shimmer and shine, the look is inspired by our favorite winter wonderland. Here’s how to get Isilda's look:
Prep skin with your go-to skin care routine. Skip the moisturizer if you have oily skin—you’ll get plenty of hydration with What the Foundation. Cover any redness, especially around the nose and mouth using Face Pencils (Isilda wears shade 19 on face and 18 under the eyes). Continue to even out skin using What the Foundation, applying using your fingers or the Skin Brush. (Isilda wears WTF in Honey.) On cheeks, apply Miracle Balm in Flushed using your fingers. This will give cheeks the perfect rosy glow.
Start by defining brows using The Brow Pencil, filling in using light, feathery strokes, or fill in using a powder shadow in a matching shade. If using a powder shadow like The Best Eyeshadow, use The Eyebrow Brush to apply and comb through brows. Apply Just A Sec in Pewter across lids using your finger or a brush— it adds an icy shine with just the right amount of depth. This product is great because it's super buildable so you can create a look that works for you. Finish by defining eyes with The Best Pencil in Black and adding a few coats of Mascara to define the eyes.
Complete your look with more Miracle Balm in Flushed on lips followed by a coat of Cool Gloss in Opal (a limited-edition shade). Add a sparkly top, fun party earrings, and you’ll be ready for toasting.
